- The latest treatment and very first LED non-invasive body contouring system. It consists of pads that are placed directly on the skin for 20 minutes that emit a specific wavelength of light (635nm) that causes fat cells to essentially "collapse."
- Light therapy is not new. It has been used for many ailments ranging from chronic pain to wound healing to hair growth. What is new is light being used to target fat cells. After adipose (fat) cells are exposed to this specific wavelength, 99% of the fat is released from the cells. The result is inch loss and impressive spot reduction anywhere on the body including the arms, back, bra bulge, saddlebags, thighs, abdomen, and even the breasts. This technique works anywhere there is excessive fat deposits.
The best part about the Lipo Light is there is no bruising, swelling, burning, pain or anesthesia required. Essentially no side effects!
So what happens to the fat? Once the fat leaves the cells, it is transported as free fatty acids to the lymphatic system to be used as energy. After each session, it is essential that some form of exercise is done so that the free fatty acids are burned up and re-deposited throughout the body.
Lipo Light is the latest body shaping system to lose inches. Our top of the range 16 pad system offers the quickest and best way of controlling body shape using Light Therapy plus exercise.
Using the power of Light Therapy combined with the stimulus of exercise, Lipo-Light is the natural and healthy way to inch loss on the waist, hips, thighs and even the arms. The whole treatment is non-invasive, relaxing, and over sustained and regular use, clients can expect to lose in the region of 2 to 6 cm* from around the targeted areas.
Light Therapy has a positive effect on those areas of the body where stimulated activity of the fat cells can result in reduction of tissue size.
Lipo-Light uses photobiomodulation to stimulate the adipose cells, releasing fatty acids and breaking them down into glycerol molecules. Combined with exercise Lipo-Light will result in targeted inch loss.
Light TherapyWhen the body needs energy, the brain sends signals to the adipose cells to break down their stored fat in order to release energy. This process is called lypolysis. During this process free fatty acids are released into the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body. Add exercise to this process and inch loss begins...
The Science behind the Lipo-Light PlanChromophores are part of a molecule which can absorb certain wavelengths of visible light. Specific wavelengths of light cause fat cell membranes to lose their round shape by changing the permeability of the cell. This light creates photobiomodulation within the adipose cells signaling a change inside each adipose cell, creating pores or channels in the cell wall.
This alteration of the cell triggers the release of an enzyme (lipase) which can break the triglyceride molecules down into fatty acids and glycerol molecules which are now small enough to pass through the pores of the cell wall releasing stored fat.
The TreatmentAs the top of the range our Lipo-Light 16 comes equipped with 16 pads, enabling maximum results from each treatment. Depending on the area of the body receiving treatment, it is recommended that between 4 and 8 treatment pads are used at any one time over each treatment area.
The pads are free moving and held in place against the area to be treated by an adjustable strap. During the treatment, the pads are held directly against the skin for maximum effect. Treatments last for a period of up to 20 minutes and the recommended number of treatments in any course of Lipo-Light is two per week, thus completing a full inch loss course over a 4 week period.
After treatment, exercise is essential to create the demand for energy which can now be met by the released fatty acids and glycerol from the adipose cells, completing the inch loss process.
After the intensive 4 week course, the client can follow one of 2 treatment paths:
- Return for a weekly maintenance treatment at the salon (max 2 per month).
- Focus on another body area for a new intensive 4 week treatment after 2 weeks.
The BenefitsLipo-Light is simple to use, hygienic, quick and effective. Because the pads remain in place for the duration of the treatment, the practitioner has the flexibility to focus on other treatments with the same, or other, clients.
Lipo-Light is the most cost-effective body sculpting product in its class. The safety of Light Therapy technology makes for ease of operation and the practitioner can be trained to use the device in a relatively short period of time.

STEVEN DEMERER D.C. OF NORTH SHORE BODY CONTOURING
1. In a few sentences, what is the procedure?
LipoLight is safe, painless, and completely non-invasive treatment for spot fat reduction and aesthetic body contouring.Clients have found hard to reduce trouble spots, such as love handles, tummy bulge, saddlebags and more - are significantly reduced with just a few treatments. Laser paddles target adipose (fat) tissue externally through skin for 20 minutes per treatment area.Results are seen in both circumference measurement and degree of body contour in the area. Clients can optimize their results through multiple LipoLight treatments combined with cardio type activity post treatment.Studies have found that clients who eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly will experience the best LipoLight results. However, even clients with sluggish metabolism remark that they experience a unique and invigorating body wake up.It is highly recommended that cardio type activity as well as our complementary whole body vibration session be utilized immediately following the LipoLight session.
2. How does the LipoLight work to shrink the fat cells?
Light energy emitted by the LipoLight safely penetrates the patient's skin. At specific frequencies, coherence and power settings, fat cells absorb the electromagnetic energy from the Light.When enough energy is absorbed, transitory (short-lived) pores form on the surface of the fat cells. Water, glycerol and free fatty acids then leak out of the fat cells and through the body's natural cleansing system are released into circulation to be processed and removed naturally. This is just like what happens when you exercise.As a result, the fat cells are smaller which results in inch loss, fat loss and often a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
3. Don't people have to just diet and exercise to lose weight?
Losing weight for many is not just about diet and exercise. It is about caffeine, stress, poor sleep, pain, over eating, under eating, wrong kind of exercise, wrong kind of diet and other lifestyle factors. They can eat less and exercise more, and still not lose weight.That is where LipoLight comes in - helping people who have tried, but just cannot seem to produce results. LipoLight helps them produce results with lifestyle changes.People who do all the right things, and are mostly healthy and fit, but they still have that one problem area, no matter what they do, the Light can spot reduce.People who want to be healthy, but lack the motivation because they don't really see any results when they are being healthy, this helps them see really quick results -and now they are more motivated to stick with those healthier lifestyle choices.
4. How long does it stay off?
Not matter what people do, drugs, surgery, pills, potions, or even diet and exercise, if they don't maintain their lifestyle, no weight will ever stay off. This is no different. To maintain weight loss, there is only one way - no matter what you do or don't do. Keep living a healthy lifestyle.
5. Is there a guarantee?
If you complete 9 sessions and you do not lose at least 1 inch or more on one measurement with minor lifestyle changes* or noticeable difference in the appearance of cellulite we will give you additional session until you get there.*Minor changes include - not eating for 1 hour before or 3 hours after a session, doing at least mild exercise the day of your sessions,drinking more water, using the included cream,and doing the included detox program.
6. Is it safe?
Absolutely. Not a single known side effect to this dayLipoLight treatments are completely non-invasive and clients feel nothing but warmth. The devices low level Light technology has been studied and used for over 30 years for many biomedical purposes.
7. What do patients do to maintain the fat loss?
Normal things you need to keep weight off - diet and exercise, drinking water and the like. If people go back to overeating and a poor diet they will gain fat back. But unlike other treatments, clients do not need to as much to retain the fat loss benefits.
8. What is involved?
Initially, 3 sessions for 3-4 weeks, latsing approximately 40 minutes per session. You relax in a comfortable position while a trained Slim Light technician places two - eight multi-Light paddles and two smaller Lights to the target areas. Then lay back, relax, read, or whatever you like. Then the vibrating platform for exercise and lymphatic drainage.Most clients choose to take a further 9 sessions, making 18 in total, for best results.
9. Where does the fat go?
That fat gets burned as energy in the body, or normal metabolic processing-just like when you exercise and release fat.
10. How quickly will patients see results?
Many clients see measurable results after their first session. The number of sessions they want is the only limitation to how much a patient can lose
